This new Monster Mash cookie Decorating Kit is a Graveyard Smash!! We think it is going to catch on like a flash!
This tutorial includes a step-by-step look at SIX Halloween cookies.
For a single batch of dough, you can make about 20-24 of these cookies (about 4 of each). I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.
Prepping the Royal Icing
I love the classic Halloween color palette from this set. Don't overcolor your icing. Avoid adding color directly to the bowl of icing. Place a drop on your spatula and mix into icing. Check out the icing guide below for tips on making the right colors and an estimate of how much of each color you'll need.
For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).
The Monster Mash cookie set has 8 gels/9 icing colors (black is used in both light and dark).
ICING PLAN BY THE OUNCE
Here is what I suggest making for a single batch.
Black Diamond - 6 oz (pipe and flood)
Purple - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Leaf Green - 5 oz (pipe and flood)
Super Red - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Sienna - 3 oz (pipe only)
Buckeye Brown - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Bright White - 4 oz (pipe only)
Lemon Yellow - 1 oz (flood only)
These amounts are ESTIMATES. When it comes to how much icing to make, l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
For a royal icing recipe and video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer.
Plan ahead to enjoy the most success with your cookie project! I break up the decorating process. It works better with my life to do a little each day. Here is the schedule for this cookie project and estimated times on how long each phase takes.
Mix Dough (30 mins), Chill Dough (2 hours inactive time), Roll and Bake (1 hour), Mix Royal Icing and Prep Icing Colors - it is helpful to make the colors the day before you decorate because the color will deepen overnight (especially the black and red). (1 hour).
Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies). Piping details and stenciling (2 hours). Don't forget to allow the Cameo plaque to dry for 4-6 hours before stenciling!
**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**
